$100,000 Challenge

"Miles Ahead" Means Nothing

Alaei no more

With 23,000 chips in the middle on the {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs} board, Daniel Alaei bet 14,000 and had 24,500 behind. Joe Hachem asked how much Alaei had behind, got a look at his stack and then announced that he was all in. Alaei quickly called to put himself at risk.

Alaei tabled the {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for top set and was up against the {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for Hachem.

It was announced that Alaei was "all in and miles ahead" by the tournament announcer before the dealer burned one last time and smacked the {8-Diamonds} on the river. Hachem spiked his gutshot straight draw to win the hand and Alaei was sent out the door.
